February – Tribute to Brian De Palma
Brian De Palma is one of the most prolific, poorly understood and controversial directors in the history of American cinema. His career has spanned three decades and includes tremendously important works. De Palma’s characters, the phrases they utter and the philosophies they propitiate have been absorbed into our cultural vocabulary. Through persistence and longevity De Palma has created a body of work that is as moody and recalcitrant as it is aesthetically unassailable.
In spite of his popularity, De Palma is admittedly notorious. He has been accused of misanthropy, misogyny, cynicism—and their opposites: of “loving women,” of humanism, idealism and gushing romanticism. He is known alternately as a dispassionate plagiarist of Hitchcock and a maverick, a wicked satirist, an avant-gardist, a “sell-out”, a fiercely independent iconoclast and an intellectual; a creator of intensely personal or detached, deterministic and cerebral movies.
During February we will screen four of his virtuous masterworks that mark the pick of his career.

Blow Out (1981)
One of Brian De Palma's most acclaimed films, this brilliant fusion of Antonioni's Blow Up and a style informed by the high-gloss suspense of Hitchcock, with themes drawn from real-life political scandals (the JFK assassination, Watergate) starts with sound technician Jack Terry (John Travolta) accidentally recording what might be explosive evidence of a deadly conspiracy. Brilliantly shot, this terrifically stylish thriller is also a film about the filmmaking process.
